Did the buffalo manage to sneak away?

“We had been tracking the Birmingham lion pride on foot and stumbled across their babies. Whilst walking back to the vehicle, we heard a buffalo bellowing as if being taken down. Of course, we rushed in the direction of the commotion and found the lions taking down the buffalo.”

“While they were keeping it down and other members suffocating it, a number of buffalo bulls came back to try to chase the lions off. Only one of the old lionesses did not flinch and kept holding on to the nose of the buffalo they had brought down.”

“Eventually, after a bit of a standoff, the pride reclaimed the buffalo and others chased the buffalo bulls away again. This was just pure excitement – it’s not every day that you can live an absolute documentary!”

“The whole pride just ended up fighting with each other for the best spot on the carcass. It was 23 lions feeding on one buffalo, so it only lasted until the afternoon.”
